I love figs and was disappointed to find a whopper in this new garden with not a single fruit. I had a "chat" with it in December whilst I wielded the loppers and secateurs and it now covered in small fruits. I'm hoping for lots of yum.
All the "normal" hydrangeas in my old gardens were gifts so I wasn't heartbroken when they didn't grow. Then I found out about paniculatas being a Belgian speciality with lots of goodies bred by the de Belders who also bred Hamamelis such as Jelena.so I knew they'd cope.

He says he had to scrape ice off the car this morning at 7am and it was still on the ground when he got to Cholet, further inland. Fine by me if get nightingale song and starlight at bedtime.
